Cretaiole is our family’s original agriturismo farmhouse that has helped independent travelers fall in love with the Val d’Orcia. Arranged in eight charming apartments–from cozy studio to spacious three bedrooms–Cretaiole offers you classic countryside living with the perfect balance of independence and community. This is where Luciano tends his vegetable garden, where we host our weekly “pici night” longtable dinner, and where you can stroll among our family vineyard and olive grove.
On land of Etruscan origin near Pienza, Cretaiole crowns a panoramic hilltop with beautiful vistas of iconic Tuscany. The ancient farmhouse’s exterior has been so beautifully preserved that you will seem to be transported to the 14th century when it was first built. Touch its stones, and your curiosity about its “story” cannot help but engage your imagination.
